Absolute Newbie Starting Out
« on: July 28, 2011, 22:11:47 pm »
Could I just ask how I begin to create a new template for my website.

Am I right in assuming that I first have to create a Joomla Theme, then once this is in place create a theme for Virtue Cart to ue within the Joomla theme?

I've read various guides about how to theme VirtueCart but none expressly mention whether or not you need to theme Joomla itself first.

I assume this is need to create the header, images, menus and other page elements whcih then will show VirtueCard.

Is this correct?

Thanks, Richard

To answer my own question (and hopefully help some other newbies out), yes you need to create a theme for for the Joomla CMS, then theme the VM modules and pages afterwards.

I'm now fighting through this process, which compared to a system like WordPress and its online Codex is proving very difficult!
